Bees

Hello blog buddies,

I have decided to surface yet again!

I am still struggling to get my craft room sorted, the house move has had a huge impact on everything!  14 years worth of stuff transported from our old house by ourselves (we couldn't get a removal company for the date we wanted to move) to the new house.  It has forced me to go through every box and question whether I want the items in them or not.  An awful lot of the 'stuff' was in our huge loft in the last house and very much out of sight, so a massive clearout has ensued!  We should really have done all this before we moved.

I have been ebaying and have made several trips to the local recycling centre in an effort to reduce the piles of 'stuff' down.

Anyway, amidst all this chaos I have made a card for someone who keeps bees and as this stamp had never been inked up before, I thought it was a perfect opportunity to do so.


CARD RECIPE

Image: Stamps Happen ~ #60058 Bees
Copic Markers
Cardstock: PTI 'Stampers Select white cardstock'
Sentiment: Simon Says Stamp 'Happy Birthday' die
Embossing folder (used on edge of card): Darice 'Honeycomb Background'
Gems (used on the end of the Bee's antenae) from my stash
Clear Wink of Stella (used on the wings)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Sentiment Designs ~ Somethings With Wings
Critters & Creatures ~ Anything Goes

So, that's all for today, back to the sorting out for me.

Thank you for visiting my little blog and I'll see you soon.

Hi Bev

I hope you are happy and settled in your new home .. .. it sounds like you had a mammoth task on your hands.

We have been here nearly 26 years now and we have certainly accumulated more than we should have. We lost my MIL a few years ago now and brought back lots from her home. So now we need to be strong and part not only with our things but hers as well.

It isn't easy is it! We would have to start sorting out about a year before we want to move LOL!!

Anyway, lovely to see you blogging .. .. and with such a beautiful card.

I have this stamp and once I see the bees in the garden it reminds me to ink it up again.

Have a good week.

Love Jules xx

We are in the process of doing the same thing ourselves. It is exhausting! I love the expression on these little bees. Love the colors and the bit of embossing is great.

Thank you for joining us at Crafty Sentiments for our Something with Wings challenge.

These silly bees just make me smile and I love the CAS design.
I hear you about moving and sorting. We just moved after being in the same place for 30 years and it is so difficult. It's been three months for me and I just now feel like I can see the end.
